Irn Bru is best chilled either when hungover, or when washing it down with any meal from the Chip shop.

Diet Irn Bru is garbage. It is a mistake.

Otherwise I'm a Scot who doesn't really drink fizzy drinks. Shocking, I know.
 
So Visa and Vodafone are already floating plans to leave and move jobs and as I understand it as soon as Article 50 is invoked every major bank will need to tell shareholders what their relocation plan is if the UK does not agree an acceptable trade deal in 2 years.

Article 50 is a bomb waiting to go off and the UK can't mitigate it because the EU have ruled out pre-negotiating.
Why would the EU even give us a decent deal if they know they can get all these jobs moving to the EU if they only offer us a shit one?
 
It's incredible that not even one week after this disaster, Juncker says that they don't care if parliaments of EU states are against CETA and that the EU commission alone will decide on it.

That's not how you earn trust, they did not learn anything.

Because BELIEVE IN BRITAIN, MOVE ON REMAINERS, ROLL UP OUR SLEEVES, and other platitudes that aren't real answers and completely ignorant to the economic, social, and political realities that Brexit has caused.

I don't think the EU is going to fuck us at negotiation. WE fucked ourselves already by giving up the sweetest of deals among core EU member states.

For what is worth I think it will be a decent fair deal. It will hurt both sides, but they'll try to make the best out of this mess. UK will get the shorter end of the stick though. Most of the promises made by Leave campaign won't come to fruition, or if indeed they are, then it will be a horrible unfair deal.

Is supporting CETA a controversial issue?

Access to the single market requires a country to accept the 'four pillars.' It is not a harsh deal or a fair deal, but the only deal, otherwise you start to not have a single market. It is not the EU's problem that the leave camp ran on a ticket to control migration and take back control of law making, that is the leave camp's issue.

It's not a bad deal
It's not a good deal
It's THE deal

The EU has the power but they can't overplay their hand because if they fuck the UK (and specifically London) there will be a recession across Europe which will give rise to right wing parties and possibly the destruction of the EU.

That scenario does seem outlandish but remember we are in a post-fact world.
 
British politics in 2016 :(

Just rather a Swedish TV interview with their EU minister about Brexit. Basic question: what would Brexit look like?

And the only evidence they have of what the UK wants is Boris's Telegraph article. So they discuss, on national TV, how nonsensical it is.

So yeah, it's very funny that Boris was tired and made a hash of it.

But this is what another EU member state - one of the states most sympathetic to us - is starting to think of us.

This is how we become a laughing stock.

My ideal UK deal would be the following:

1) Access to single market
2) Ability to make our own laws and not be bound by EU at all
3) Contribute in all major debates and decisions
4) KICK THEM IMMIGRANTS OUT
5) Free movement? Forget that

You can't have 1) with the rest.

You forgot that Wales, Cornwall keep receiving EU funds. I don't think the EU has a right to stop funding, it would be undemocratic!

You can have 1 (deal A), or 2, 4 and 5 (deal B God Help You). UK waived 3 out of the window with the referendum. Choose wisely.

There are parts of the electorate who think this could actually happen.

God help us.
 
Here's a deal. Somebody build a time machine out of coconuts. Go back to the point where camaeron was mulling over putting an EU rem into an election manifesto promise.

Kick him in the balls and say no.

I think the above is imminently more achieveable then any deal leave voters want.
 
Can only see this getting a hell of of alot worse before it gets any better.
I would also like to have a vote for "if you voted and then changed your mind the next day, you get a kick in the fucking head for being a stupid bastard"
im also embarrassed to be known as English at this point, time to cash in my Irish heritage.

Bring back the monarchy, the great unwashed cant be trusted with this kind of shit, thats all I can see for this mess.
